While you wait for the next episode of The Mandalorian, perhaps you’d like your very own Baby Yoda to keep you company? You’re in luck: someone has made a pattern from which you can crochet your very own Baby Yoda small enough to fit into your pocket.
Even if you’re not an avid crocheter, this pattern from Brazilian crochet guru PhilaeArtes is easy enough for beginners. The pattern is in the style of “amigurumi,” a Japanese style of knitting or crocheting small stuffed yarn creatures.
It’s just as adorable as actual Baby Yoda!
To successfully make this Baby Yoda toy, you’ll need to know (or learn) to make a magic circle or magic ring, a single crochet stitch, and how to change to a different yarn color.
PhilaeArtes also has a pattern for an even tinier Baby Yoda keychain, which could totally double as a Christmas ornament during the holidays.
If you’re not crafty enough to make either of these patterns come to life, no worries — you can always buy a stuffed Baby Yoda toy that’s ready-made! You’d be in good company, too, as Mattel’s Baby Yoda toy was the best-selling plush toy on Amazon for much of December. The toy is so popular that it sold out, but there’s a new talking version that is still available.
